Germany, circa 1940. The first prototype of the high-altitude bomber with Jumo-207A-1 engine. First flew in February 1940. The aircraft is finished in the standard prewar bomber colours of RLM61/62/63/65 and is essentially a standard Ju.86D with all gun positions faired over and the forward nose replaced by an experimental pressure cabin of the P-series. This is finished in RLM 02. Note also the two yellow fuselage bands indicating blind-flying status.
